Bring Smiles with RUSNAK Toy Drive for Foster Care Charity
November 22, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News(Pasadena, CA) Bringing joy to children during the holidays is relatively easy. Feasting on a gingerbread house, unwrapping a toy, or taking a picture with Santa Claus are ways to brighten a child’s day during this time. For foster care children living at Hillsides, there is no difference. With the generous support from RUSNAK Auto Group, children at Hillsides, the foster care children’s charity, will experience a day of joy.
RUSNAK Auto Group will be collecting unwrapped toy donations at their five locations in Pasadena, Arcadia, Westlake, and Loma Linda. Beginning December 1, patrons can visit these locations and drop off a gift that will bring joy to children who need it the most.
“While Hillsides strives to give children new traditions and experiences that will create happy memories, we can only do this with the support of the community who helps provide the extras for our children,” said Laura Kelso, Hillsides’ director of community resources. “We’re grateful to Paul Rusnak and the RUSNAK Auto Group for including our children this holiday season,” Kelso continues.
As a Pasadena foster care charity founded in 1913, Hillsides creates safe places for children at risk and their families by providing residential care, mental health services to break the cycle of domestic violence, special education, and advocacy. Hillsides encourage individuals to support its effort to provide holiday toys and wishes to these children and others at-risk in the community.
Other businesses, organizations, or churches wishing to sponsor a Hillsides’ toy drive for foster care children at their establishment can request a red bucket adorned with a Hillsides’ display sign and information cards. Red buckets are delivered to place of business or can be picked up at Hillsides’ campus anytime before December 2. Red buckets with unwrapped toys should be delivered to Hillsides by December 20.
